Thursday, Wolfe confirmed with her client that medical professionals have stated the neck injury worsened over the night, eventually developing into brain injuries. Pena agreed that if he had taken the baby to the hospital that afternoon when he noticed she was in pain, the damage may not have progressed so far.
Bunce and Dillon are also charged with one count of willful injury and three counts of child endangerment causing serious injury. As part of his plea, Pena agreed to provide information and statements on them. If he is found in violation of his agreement, he will be required to submit to a polygraph test, which will be admissible in court.
Tabor waived the acceptance of the plea until a pre-sentencing agreement is finished. The sentencing is set for 9 a.m. Sept. 5.
